The latest Community Project undertaken by CRL Bristol was to work for 2 days in the garden of Paul’s Place in Coalpit Heath.
Paul’s Place is a charity that enhances life for physical, cognitive, and sensory impaired disabled adults. They do this by providing a programme of daily social activities that connect people, reduce isolation, improve health and wellbeing and give people the opportunity to develop new skills, enjoy new experiences and live life to the full.
Through the spouse of one of our staff we were made aware that there were various maintenance tasks that needed to be carried out on the premises. After discussing the works with the relevant people, it was agreed that CRL would supply a crew to carry out these tasks.
Six CRL colleagues spent 2 days on site in the sunshine painting fences, trimming hedges, clearing weeds & leaves, and laying weed-suppressant membrane topped with bark.
We met some of the wonderful volunteer helpers and clients and at the end of the day they were delighted with the improvements we had made to their outdoor space where they like to hold many activities.
We had some great feedback from Paul’s Place: “Thank you so much for all the incredible work you and your team completed last week, and for your generous donation of resources. The garden looks amazing, and it has made such a huge difference. Thank you so much again.”
